New "xad" driver for Adaptec 1540/1542CP SCSI controller

New "xad" driver for Adaptec 1540/1542CP SCSI controller

Post by Steve Kittelberge » Sat, 11 Nov 1995 04:00:00

Downloaded and installed this driver on an existing ODT3.0 system and
the system appears to run a fair amount (approx. 3-4 times) slower when
there is disk usage.  Anybody have any experience with this similar to



1. an old ISA SCSI controller (Adaptec 1540)

I have a couple of old ISA SCSI controller(Adaptec 1540*) and a SCSI drive.
In my maching, I have win98 running on a IDE drive and I would like to
install LINUX on the SCSI drive.  Since I've never used SCSI devices,
there are few concerns as listed below:

1. what do I do to make LINUX installer to recognize the ISA SCSI

2. What information about the controller do I need to know? i.e. IRQ, I/O
address, and so on.

3. do I need to format the SCSI drive before I start the LINUX

Um... that's all I can think of for now...
